Bravo, Sister! Well done.


Not a bad run, all in all. There is no price you can put on getting away - no matter what you getting away from. The quiet time to choose to have no sound. Aaahhh....


Wonderfully said Carmen. Thank you!


Sounds like how to do BlogHer.

C, you know you're always on my A-list. I really missed seeing you this year. Next year, for sure. There'll be no keeping me away from New York.

Good for you, Carmen. It's interesting to read from someone who has attended before '09, thanks for sharing. :)

This is exactly how I felt about Blogher this year. I, too, decided to use the time for me. I like the conference, the panels, & the swag, but doing my own thing, & talking for more than 5 seconds with people is the heart of the Blogher conference. I thoroughly enjoyed talking with you and I look forward to next year, where I plan to do it just like this, again.


i think that's great! i'm really excited for next years and i plan on being there.. planning as in i am saving NOW. :) we all need time away for ourselves and i love what blogher gives us- time with people we consider friends outside of the computer. :) SEE YOU NEXT YEAR!


Sometimes a little alone time is more healing than anything else in the world. I have a convention next month and I can't wait, simply because I get some alone time. Balm to the soul.


I am so happy to have met you, too! It was really awesome to find some downtime with a friend during that otherwise manic weekend. Let's find a way to grab another quiet coffee in NYC next year!


Well, I consider you an A-lister. At least in my book -- I stopped reading the "A-listers" long ago but I still like reading about your life and am inspired how you take care of yourself. I totally get the alone-time thing, and am glad you had plenty while in Chicago.


Oh Carmen gross! I think you just became a grown-up! Lol...I am kidding of course. I am so glad that you got some time to be alone and I think that it's wonderful that you realize how much you deserved it. Bravo!

I'm thrilled you got what you wanted out of the conference. I did too and a lot of us veterns seem to have felt the same way - like we went with really no expectations and had fun doing what we wanted.
It was awesome getting quality time with you. You are fantastic, lady.

Sounds awesome! I love it when you can leave a party exactly when you want to. It so rarely happens. Reading, making friends, eating yummy food. Sounds like a great conference.


I know just how you feel. I'm glad you had the blogher experience you needed! I really enjoyed meeting you at Thursday's event.

This is a great post. And not that it matters, but I totally consider you an A list blogger.


Way behind on reading - but just wish to say, I love your writing...and your realness. I hope to meet you irl someday.

Sounds like you had a great experience! I'm sorry we didn't get a chance to talk more, I really wanted to sit down and chat with you. The next time I'm in your area, I'm coming over! :)


Very nicely done. I think that "rush rush rush" would be the part I wouldn't enjoy. I like people, and I like meeting people but I like talking to people not just "oh I forgot your name and everything about you because I only talked for 2minutes, next!" :)
